Leg Braces for Loubens
We first met Loubens in 2016. Loubens has severe leg deformities from malnutrition. He lives with his brothers and sisters in a remote village up in the mountains of Artibonite. We have been seeing Loubens in our mobile rehab clinic in his area. We have provided him nutritional support and transportation assistance to Port-au-Prince for medical evaluations. Initially, we thought he may have surgery but the orthopedic surgeon from the US, who was on a mission trip to Haiti, said he was too malnourished and felt that his bones were too soft and weak for surgery. Instead, he recommended serial casting to straighten the bones as much as possible and eventually bracing. Through your support, we have been able to sponsor Loubens and his parents for multiple trips to Port-au-Prince, multiple casts and the making of his braces that he has been wearing every night. Thank you for supporting him and his family for these services that they could never have afforded on their own.
This is how we make a difference at Community Rehab Project. We hear of people in need and through the power of our group, we make a tangible difference around the world.
